Wyoming teacher evaluation bills contain provisions for video cameras in classrooms

According to the Casper Star-Tribune, two bills introduced in the Wyoming Legislature would require videotaped class periods to be part of every teacher’s evaluation. All teachers are evaluated annually by law. Initial-contract teachers are evaluated twice each year. However, House Bill (HB) 166 would also require all teachers on initial and continuing contracts to be evaluated in writing every month. One of HB 166’s sponsors, Rep. Steve Harshman, believes the cameras would allow principals and teachers to view and improve instruction. Source: Casper Star-Tribune, 1/20/11, By Jackie Borchardt
